Quick update, car is still at the body shop. New hood went out to get blasted and was worse than my original hood with the flash rust SMFH
So he is cutting out good sections from the newly bought hood, cutting out bad sections on my original hood, welding them on and re-painting the hood.
What a fucking nightmare, so in the mean time I either gotta think about going fiberglass which I absolutely hate, plus my billet hood hinges are for metal hoods.
Or I need to source a solid hood over the next year which I'll probably try and do. The car is put back together and buffed, but he still needs to polish it. He is going to do that when he wet sands and installs the hood. The grill looks really good on the car with the Rose Gold accents.
Picking her up tomorrow to go to the tuner. Yes I'll be that guy that drives it with no hood out to Sycamore NFG lol.
Any guesses on what she will put down, its being tuned on 93 being I'm doing flex and planning on running a tank of 93 thru it every 4-6 weeks.
2.40 pulley, fully ported blower, Borowski LS3 ported heads, and a mild blower cam. I have no idea what to expect as I dont know these LS motors and LSA's
I can tell you this though, the ride home after the tune is going to be balls to the fucking wall on those side roads (Plank rd)
After the tune, if my guy has one of his lifts open. I'll take it back to the west side to do the 15" 2pc rotors and 6 piston calipers up front.
I know I have to notch the spindles to make the big brake kit work. I talked to a local powder coater who will PC my spindles black with a 1 day turn around.
So while they are being PC, I'll go over the whole drivetrain to make sure everything is still tight, no leaks, etc. I'll also have the tuner adjust the fans so they both come on at the same time. Also have to figure out my fuel gauge issue, I'm almost positive the bass is knocking the ground loose or something stupid like that.
At times the gauge reads true, then it will read empty
